What’s Different with these new programmes:
- Evidence Informed
Devised in collaboration with teachers, school leaders, academies, and an Expert Advisory Group. independently reviewed by the EEF to verify that they are evidence-based
- Specialist Qualifications:
The ‘NPQML’ is no more and in its place are 3 new specialist qualifications:
Leading Behaviour and Culture
Leading Teacher Development
- Professional Development Focus
All qualifications include a strand dedicated to professional development. The aim of this is to change the narrative within schools around Personal Development.
- Golden Thread
The reformed suite supports the ‘golden thread’ running from ITT and ECF using the same core evidence-base and developing the shared language.
- Domain Specific
The reformed suite of qualifications focus more on the key domains of leadership that teachers and school leaders need to thrive and less on generic leadership styles.
There is no longer an in-school project to complete alongside the training element of the programme. Participants will complete an open-book assessment in an eight-day set window within 3 months of completion requiring a structured 1500-word response to a real multi-resource scenario/case-study.
